India of my dreams

India where secularity yields no commotions

India where solidarity bridles our emotions

India where integrity intensify our passion

India where humanity persists as our notion


India where youth strive but not strike

India where revolutions revive but not rebuke

India where kids are in schools but not in streets

India where religion teaches but not tortures


India where rivers are shared but not soiled

India where bridges are renewed but not ruined

India where mountains protect but not divide

India where roads are broadened but not pumped


India where economy is improved and empowered

India where education is available and affordable

India where men and women are in equal status

India where we are aware of our rights and duties


‘Unity in Diversity’ is India’s specialty; its axis

But now a curse, a hurdle in our path of progress

Beware of politicians, jokers who juggle to exploit

Let us explode and expedite a timely arousal!

To mould that heavenly India of our dreams

A sunny rainy day

  Sun was about to pack off to brighten the other part of the world

To make room for the darkness to creep and wrap the day in his hold

An unusual bustle everywhere, may be the tussle of the blowing wind

Winged Winds sweeping and spraying the dry sands and leaves

Even huge trees swinging to the tune and tempo of the wind

The stormed nature heralding an outpour of the sky with its water show


Birds in clusters flying off in haste to reach their shelters in time

Cows pacing to sheds and dogs hiding under some parked vehicles

A frail man fretting in futile to group his goats scattered everywhere

From nearby forest some peacocks howling in their dancing mood

The worried mothers waiting at gates for the kids who went out to play

Everywhere a puzzling panic as if it never rained before


The sky is painted into grayish black by the cumulating clouds

Dazzled by the silvery lightning, followed by the roaring thunder

I got out, obsessed by this furious but fantastic show of nature

Looked up at the sky, few drops of water fell on my eyes in response

Then it became massive, the smell of the rain hit land bewitching me

Senses stimulated I got immersed with that exquisite concert of nature

Life in capsules

Life is now in capsules, so precise and compact

Everything in an array, kept accurate and in tact

Days well planned and even seconds counted

As nights quite shortened even sleep minimized


Food in readymade packs, swallowed even in roads

Tinned milk and juices swift killers of thirst and hunger

Hanging in crowded buses or flying in two-wheelers

Plunging into moving trains, to be punctual in office


Kids burdened with heavy bags and tough lessons

Early to school and back home late, play time is nil

Some stuffed in hostels sweating with dreams of home

Lacks in nothing but something is missing, indefinable


Some live in far-off lands earning to boost their wallet

In touch with dear ones but still mind tastes numbness

Indeed inventions made this world so small and concise

But hearts’ needs cannot be curtailed or compensated


Mother’s lap or father’s hug, spouse’s warmth or kids’ kisses

Too precious to part with, too sweet to scorn as silly

Only when we lose we feel the worth of what we had

Only when we gain we feel the worth of what we are


Life is just a game, gallop but not grumble when u fail

Life is just a battle, brave it but not baffle when u face

Life is just a dream, live it but not regret when u realise

Life is but a unique gift, careful not to gamble or jumble

Permalink to What is happiness?

What is happiness?

Life is a perpetual pursuit to attain and retain

‘Happiness’ the most blissful mental status,

A serene sensation that springs in our soul

Blooms our heart and radiates the body.


Happiness is contagious, let it loose to spread out

As a smile causes thousand smiles to sprout out.

Happiness is music, a sea of nectar to be consumed

It is contentment, a mental harmony in concord


Money can buy you pleasures, but not peace

Power can bring you honours, but not grace

Joy of course measures, when shared apiece

Sorrow creeps and crushes, but not demise


Happiness is love eternal and enlivened

Happiness is hope kindled and refreshed

Happiness is an unique feeling undefined, but

Happiness doubles and bubbles when shared


Our mind is always a wet fertile land

Sow there the seeds of hope, love and peace

Nurture it well with patience and persistence

To reap the harvest of happiness in heaps!!

Permalink to Things to remember

Things to remember

At times we feel totally lethargic and lousy

The whole life seems frivolous and fretted

Ifs and buts creep in, life turns an enigma

A stage so common but has to get through


Count what you have, lapses and lacks slowly vanish

Compile your real tune to compose the song of life

Complaint not but be constant in controversies

Confined in passion but concrete in notions


Be like a child, carefree and worry-free

Be like a monk, poised and persistent

Be like a lion, fearless and tireless

But try to be yourself, not a replica


Easy to give tips but cozy if you really heed

Alone we strain but together we can strive

After all man is a social being, aloof why u remain?

Life is to be lived, so waste not even a breath!!

Permalink to Life mechanised

Life mechanised

Living in an era where

Machines replace manpower


Everything electrified

Hands just to switch on and off


Here or there; wherever you are

Companioned with mobiles


Legs seldom touch the earth

As you float in skies or ride in cars


No dragging waits for postman’s bell

Email is just instant and immediate


Friendships made so easy and quick

Just a click, you in the midst of options many


Less time in kitchen or with sewing machines

Housewives enthralled by the magic box


No time or patience for finger calculations

Kids so familiar with calculators


Books so heavy and elaborate to peep in

Popped search engines, offers in precise


Dusted accounts book are given rest

As spread sheets excel brain’s speed


Not only in touch but also in sight

See while you chat with your near ones


Inventions are indeed innovative

Lessen the strain though stress still sticks


World so small and our vistas so vast

Still our heart aches when it lacks


The tender touch of pure love and care

As the world is too busy to hear and heed


Still our hearts demand and deplore

Is this only that we really want?


Permalink to Aged but young

Aged but young

 In no time she coloured her hair

With no grey hair left to show up


Few minutes in beauty parlour

Face glared with no wrinkles


Attired in a most modern dress

Her each move so enticing


She floated through the street

Brisk and beaming like a damsel


Tickles travelled through her body

When amazed eyes stick on her


Nothing reminded her of the age

Still feeling so young and lively


Entered her office even prior to time

But stunned by the impending sour news


Tears rushed, but hushed with strain

One more month to go for her retirement


The day dragged on she totally drooped

Drained of life she returned home


Her hubby at gate with a blooming face

Courted her to home, so unusual


Blinking tears with a blank mind

Never had she felt so weak all through


The door opened with a Bang! With

Some soft music so mellowing


Her hubby said aloud “It is our first wedding day”,

“But after the thirty fifth” he whispered


Now standing beside him in her wedding dress

She was beaming with glowing youth


Just hand in hand they walked out

To celebrate the day’s mirth


Behind every aged BUT young woman

There stands a man always loving and caring


Permalink to We are the moulders

We are the moulders

 Love is eternal

If it is immeasurable


Happiness is an illusion

If it can be purchased


Intelligence is futile

If it leads to pride


Foolishness is bliss

If it keeps us humble


Loneliness is fruitful

If it induces to ponder


Togetherness turns a curse

If it breeds hatred


Music is divine

If it flames our soul


Dance is a tonic

If it drives away lethargy


Life is like a treasure island

If we explore we get richer


Life remains just a fantasy

If we remain just dreamers


Life becomes what we opt to make it

Life becomes vacuum once we omit to make it

Permalink to Dreams and realities

Dreams and realities

 In deep depth of our mind

Dreams are kept slumbering

Some of them find light

Many of them die in darkness


Never be ashamed of your dreams; without them

Sapless hapless we linger worst than a log lifeless

Dreams are like angels colourful and cherubic

Dreams are like witches too, webs and later ebbs


Winged thoughts sometimes fly off bridle less

Exceed all limits and high are its splendours

But at any unpredicted moment have to come down

To feel and face the sour realities in store


Life is like a cup of raw rice to be cooked and served

Boil it in the salty water of sweat and wait with hope

In-between add the spices of dreams and fortune

Garnish it with ambition and present it with prayers


Fate favours you when you are persistent to win

Fate fails you when you are hesitant to resist

Fate hails you when you are valiant to sustain

Fate conquers you when you are impatient to remain


Permalink to Nature’s law

Nature’s law

I saw a garden green and gorgeous

Full of dancing blooms fresh and fragrant

Sat in the midst to flavour the flawless beauty

Induced by the embrace of the scented breeze

A chilly tickle travelled quick from head to toe

I lay on the grassy carpet shadowed by the apple tree


Ears sensed a howling whistle: soon eyes captured a lusty bee

From flower to flower he fluttered to flirt and imbibe

Licked the petals soft and sucked the nectar in greed

Seduced blooms succumbing to his winks and whims

Subject are we all, from insects to human

To the nature’s law, better not breach to be in peace


Heard a kid’s shrieking cry from somewhere near

In no time a woman in panic rushed from nowhere

Cuddled and pampered the kid with her muddy hand

Clasped the babe close to her drooping bosom

Leaning on the tree she closed her eyes in relish

See the nature’s wonder, mum’s blood turned into milk


Something is there beyond our grasp, don’t you agree?

Something is there that binds us together, don’t you feel?

Something is there that always we miss, don’t you hanker?

That something is there within your heart, please look in!!

That something is nothing but Love; please spread out!!

That something is everything in life; please fill it, in and out!!
